Pavel Barber

I am a stickhandling specialist with a deep passion for understanding skills deeply. If there's 2 things I'm most passionate about, it's the game of hockey, and the work ethic it takes to get as good as you can at something. I've studied talent generation across all fields, and I am honoured to be in a position to pass on my knowledge to the next generation of hockey players.

Stickhandling was something I just loved to do. I formed an obsession with it at an early age after watching guys like Pavel Datsyuk dominate the league with his display of stickhandling brilliance. The rules of the game have changed to allow more skill to shine through, and we are starting to see creative displays of stickhandling brilliance on a day to day basis in the NHL and across all the semi-pro and minor hockey leagues. There's a lot of power skating coaches out there, but there needs to be more stickhandling specialists. Skating and stickhandling compliment each other, and it should never be one or the other. No matter what your position, you should want to feel confident with the puck out there.
